Clinical Decision-Making With Dynamic Assessment (PD102348)

Presenter(s): Elizabeth D Peña, PhD
Course Description

A challenge in conducing dynamic assessment – an alternative to standardized testing that accounts for individuals’ unique cultural and linguistic identities – is putting together all the information to make a clinical decision. In this course – which is broken into six 5-minute blocks – speaker Elizabeth Peña discusses using dynamic assessment to identify indicators of language difference and language disorder and how to incorporate this information into a clinical report and intervention plan. Peña gives examples and guides you through making recommendations about intervention based on dynamic assessment results.

This course is part of the micro course series “Integrating Dynamic Assessment IntoYour Practice.”
